Teemu Tainio admitted he would have been devastated if a toe injury would have kept him out of our final two crunch games.

Head Coach Martin Jol revealed there were fears that the midfielder had suffered a broken toe after Saturday's 1-1 draw at Highbury but thankfully allayed those fears on Tuesday.

Teemu will now be available for selection for Bolton at home on Sunday.

"My toe is not broken like we feared at first," confirmed Teemu, outstanding alongside Michael Carrick in a central midfield role against Arsenal.

"I didn't train on Tuesday but I trained today and hopefully I'll be okay for Sunday.

"I've had a couple of injuries and it's been really disappointing to miss games so I'm relieved it's not broken.

"We're already without a couple of players and I'm really happy I'll be okay for the last two games."
